I’m Olivia, a fashion and wedding photographer based in the farthest tip of the South West of the UK: Cornwall. I moved from Switzerland when I was 18 to study fashion photography in the small University town of Falmouth, and fell in love with the sea. When my 4 years of University were up, I was supposed to move back to the land of cows and skiing. Just weeks before my move, I met a Cornish boy, fell deeply in love, and decided that I wasn’t done with Cornwall just yet. Three years later: I’m still in Cornwall, I’m still loving the sea, and I’m still loving the boy!
So where does photography come into this? Well, since I was very little I’ve been obsessed with imagery. I love everything about pictures; whether they’re pictures of my family, paintings of landscapes, or incredibly fashion images; I love them all. When I was 15, I picked up a camera for the first time after discovering flickr.com, and completely immersed myself in the world of photography. I taught myself how to use a camera from back to front, and never looked back! Now, I use my time as a photographer to capture marketing imagery for wedding brands, immortalise the wedding days of couples in picture form, and create editorial stories in the beautiful county that I'm so fortunate to live in.

What Kind of Photography do I do?
Wedding Industry Commercial Photography
One of my biggest passions involves photographing anything revolving around the wedding industry. Be it wedding dresses, jewellery, flowers, or venues, if you're in need of new imagery to help promote your business, please get in touch, because I would absolutely love to help you. I'll work with you to hone in on exactly what kind of imagery your brand needs to help take it to the next level within the wedding industry, and even help you to secure publication on some of the worlds biggest wedding blogs!
Alongside all of the bridal work I do, fashion photography is another big part of my life. I spent three years studying a BA(Hons) in Fashion Photography at Falmouth University (I got a First! *humble brag*). Be it model portfolios, or brands in need of lookbooks/campaigns, I love it all.
I couldn't possibly love photographing bridal fashion and not love photographing actual weddings! I want you to be totally present on your wedding day, but equally be able to relive your wedding day forever. A lover of all things relaxed, informal, and intimate, if you're looking for a photographer who wants to capture your day in a non invasive way, I'm definitely your girl.
Whether you've just got engaged and want some images to celebrate, or you'd simply like to have a fun afternoon together while having some photographs taken, I'd love to get involved! I work in a very non-formal way. You won't get any cheesy posing with me. I'm all about capturing the real moments. What does a photoshoot like this look like? Well, normally we'll meet somewhere pretty, go for a walk, have a chat, and every so often I'll make you stop, I'll crack a bad joke and capture the images in those moments. It's fun, I promise!
A few more fun facts about me?
Blue is my favourite colour, which is why you’ll most likely see it surrounding me at all times: on my clothes and jewellery, in my images, and on my walls!
I simply cannot walk past a body of water (sea or lake) without taking a photograph of it!
I eat pancakes every single morning without fail.
My goal in life is to have long, Disney princess hair.
My favourite evening activity involved the comfiest pair of pyjamas that I own, a cup of peppermint tea, the couch, my (fake) fur blanket, and a brilliant TV show.
What are your favourite things? I’d genuinely like to know!
